It necessitates offering smaller sizes so as to allow for sampling of a variety of foods and ultimately reduces waste.
How to do this?
Adapt recipes and their cooking times.
For an afternoon tea introducing a new baby...
I think it's easiest to keep things relaxed and simple...
Two teachers have newborns and the staff are putting together a group shower in the Library.
We are serving small scones with jam and clotted cream, a fruit platter, small sandwiches, a veggie tray and decorated mini cupcakes.
A variety of teas, black, green, herbal and milk, lemon wedges, sugar and honey.
It's always a good idea to have a large pitcher of water with sliced lemons on the table as well.
Place everything on a table laid with a pretty tablecloth...don't forget the flowers...they needn't be expensive just a cheery bunch in a simple vase.
You'll also need plates, cups and saucers and some pretty napkins...

Cranberry Scone Recipe
I substituted blueberries for the cranberries...
Generously floured counter
I used a small jar as the "cutter" because all my others were too large
necessity is the mother of invention!
I had to use 2 pizza pans as well
so many scones so few cookie sheets!
Golden and ready to serve
I watched the oven very carefully so as not to burn these
instead of the 15-20 minutes that the recipe stated
I only needed 10 minutes.
I have packed them up in a large Tupperware container and they are good to go.
After all this baking I made a pot of Chai Tea
which is new to me and I love it.
I like it with milk and one sugar cube
I do not use sugar in other teas
just this one.
I decided to play around with paint...
dabble if you will.
I have felt the urge ever since my girlfriend D. bought the Poppie painting...
just a little nudge was all it took
and so it goes...
Pepper was so funny when I was painting
She was leaping around, scratching and exploring all the corners
which is also
she was a great companion!
I enjoyed her antics
she is such a great kitten
Pets really make a difference
do you agree?
I am also curious...
what hobbies do you engage in?
